Is Whoopie Pie the new cupcake?

The NY Times has an article this week about the sudden national prominence of the previously regional Whoopie Pie. Check it out here.

I made whoopie pies back in fall, and I admit I'm a convert. These fluffy cake like cookies sandwich a thick layer of decadent frosting. Why should people in Maine have all the fun?

The classic version is often chocolate with vanilla icing, but I made Martha Stewart's pumpkin version with cream cheese icing. They were completely addictive and gone in a flash! Granted pumpkin is seasonal, but even the professional baker in the NY Times article says that people seek her version out year round. Yum!
